There are several things the UK could do to break the Brexit deadlock. Sadly, we can’t do any of them, because our PM is a massive spanner who’s jammed herself in the works:

Unfortunately for May, the UK has a contingency plan for encouraging people it doesn’t like to leave. And she’s the person who invented it.

Go away, May

As home secretary, May commissioned a fleet of ‘racist vans’ to encourage illegal immigrants to leave the country. These ended up being part of a ‘hostile environment’ that made non-white people feel unwelcome in Britain.

The plan is to have these vans hang around outside parliament displaying messages like:

  • Just stop.
  • But are you being ‘very clear’?
  • If you’re worried people will remember you as the worst PM ever, it’s already too late to change that.
  • Everything you just said is nothing.
  • If you’d quit already, you’d be running through a field of wheat by now.
  • STOP!
  • This isn’t normal.
  • You’re not normal.
  • Unless you’re a super villain with a secret scheme to devalue Britain and sell it to North Korea, your plan isn’t working.
  • Even James Cleverly is tired of kissing your arse.
  • So long, and thanks for all the fash!

Some people have argued that harassing May with vans isn’t nice. And it isn’t. It’s a phenomenon we used to recognise as ‘protest’. And if you can’t protest the politicians who’ve harassed an entire nation of people, then who can you protest?’
